Hey all, initial plans were to part out my 1G and use most of the parts for my spyder vr4 build but ended up getting another block for that car. I'm in the process of bringing my 1G back to stock. Car started as a built 16g car but the shop building that car had a terrible machine shop. That motor was toast. Sold most of that setup and got a "JDM" motor. I had alot of trouble with that motor, low compression, overheating, blowing smoke, randomly turning off as I drove. Basically I rebuild the motor, wire harness and now the rear turbo. Plan on pulling off my coilovers, cfds and big brakes for a stock setup soon as well.

How I got it back after the crap shop




Interior wiring was a nightmare

After fixing the harness (mostly, a67 terminal was replaced later which caused my car to turn off randomly)


Bay cleaned up


Powdercoated some of my parts


Low compression (guess the front two had a leak between the cylinders)



Rewired fans to work like stock


My new shop :)

Rear turbo shot..

Bearings? What Bearings lol

And that's where I'm at. I have another cartridge on order. Hopefully this will fix the last of my problems

Are you going to be selling the non stock stuff you aren't using for the Spyder?

I have a few things for sale that I'm not using on the spyder, have a set of cianci widebody front carbon fiber vented fenders, an extra sparco pro2000 seat, passenger sparco bracket, few other things. Most of the stuff is going to get used
